Sugar Aunts: Learning Rainbow Order Stacking Cups

Learning Rainbow Order Stacking Cups

Today we're sharing rainbow stacking cups, possibly one of the simplest learning activities that we've put together.  These DIY stacking cups are a wonderful way for learning rainbow order, and so much fun to play with over and over again.

These rainbow stacking cups are really so easy to put together.  I used 
styrofoam cups 
 tape 
and cardstock in a rainbow of colors.


Cut the cardstock into strips lengthwise.

We had SO much fun with these rainbow cups!  We stacked them up in random and rainbow orders.  As we stacked, we siad the colors of the rainbow.  Little Guy (age 5) considers himself an expert in knowing the colors of the rainbow in correct order and was sure to correct Little Sister (age 3) in the accurate stacking of the rainbow.

We used the cups to build towers and buildings over and over again.

These cups make a great collection cup for a rainbow scavenger hunt.  Go around the house looking for matching colored items to fill the cups.  We found crayons, ribbons, scrap paper, toys, Legos...This is a fun way to work on color identification with preschoolers.
